    Lantek Expert: automation and traceability

    Lantek has met the needs of a market that demands greater efficiency in processes and time saving on common tasks. Through constant collaboration with its clients it has over 40 general improvements available. They are united under the umbrella of its popular CAD-CAM 2D software for cutting sheet metal and metal, Lantek Expert.

    Improvements include the innovative proposal for managing the destruction of holes, skeletons, and remnants, as an element to assist the operator in the evacuation of manufactured parts. Another improved area involves simplifying the workflow with automatic processes. Automating tasks is a constant, allowing routine processes to be concentrated and improving nesting groupings according to the customer’s needs.

    To resolve the identification and traceability requirements of parts, Lantek increased the possibilities for databases of parts, in addition to allowing sheet metal and remnants to be marked by QR codes automatically and semi-automatically. Lantek opens up a world of possibilities for encapsulating the information associated with the part that may even include the operations and characteristics that must be incorporated into the part once it is cut (color, processing, bending, etc.) In addition, Lantek has optimized data collection and control capacities, increasing the cutting machine database; which, at present, includes over 1,200 models from practically all manufacturers on the market, and the quality of production data.

    Integration with design programs

    The 2019 version has been renovated with the integration of the main design programs for the inclusion and management of 3D models for cutting and bending processes. This increases the programs and files available for use, incorporating all the main 3D graphic formats currently on the market. Users can now manage different bending parameters for each operation, such as bend length, bend angle, bend radius, K-factor, special bends, rotation or tool change. They can generate STL files which allow for 3D part viewing; DXF files, which allow it to be treated as a CNC; and LSTC files with all bending information.

    Lantek Flex3d Tubes - increasing efficiency in tube cutting

    The latest release incorporates new machine models which cover the various philosophies in tube cutting by laser. It achieves cutting optimizations depending on the mechanic capacities of the machine and simplifies cutting management in order to clean the tube, management of remnants, and evacuation of the part.

    Lantek MES - how to manage production efficiently

    Adequate production management and planning is another key to achieving success in manufacturing processes in the factories of the future. Lantek MES is the product that unites 19 significant new production management features. The objective: optimize production in several directions. Users can now see production planning fully, in real-time, with different views, sequences or Gantt charts, thanks to the new Lantek MES Monitoring module. It offers simplicity, power, and immediacy to keep daily production in the spotlight.

    Added to this is a series of general efficiency improvements: nesting with sheet metal selection, entire production traceability, data collection, and improvement of data quality in more ranges of machines, reports, and filters.

    “Our only aim with this full repertoire of improvements is to give Lantek solutions a new status in assisting production management in an even quicker and easier way. Thanks to the data tracking and analysis that we carry out, we are ready to bring intelligent manufacturing closer to a sector that needs to jump on the bandwagon of Industry 4.0 to remain competitive. In this sense, we have transformed our clients’ needs into powerful manufacturing and management tools. This update is truly worthwhile.” confirms Ortiz.

  • Lantek, a multi-national pioneer in the digital transformation of the sheet metal and metal industry, has entered into a collaborative agreement with the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM). BCAM is an international research center specializing in the field of Applied Mathematics. It was pioneered in 2008 by the Basque Government, the University of the Basque Country, and Ikerbasque. BCAM is supported by the Provincial Government of Bizkaia and Innobasque. It has a workforce of over 90 high-level researchers in different areas, from data science to mathematical modeling.

    The agreement reached by both organizations focuses on developing new models of applied mathematics and algorithms. It will enable metal forming industries to reach high levels of calculation efficiency. The collaboration seeks to resolve the calculation of machining and optimization of the consumption of material. This area is exceedingly complex for manufacturers trying to achieve maximum machine efficiency.

    As a starting point, the collaboration will explore new avenues for parts nesting. In the industrial world, the nesting process strives to maximize use of material. By configuring and arranging pieces of sheet metal for optimal cutting, manufacturers avoid material waste and improve machine cutting time. The agreement may bring about significant advances, contributing to the efficiency of the sheet metal industry.

    Since its creation, Lantek’s objective has been excellence in software engineering. They achieve this through developing products and applying knowledge of mathematical models which provide better solutions for the sheet metal and fabrication industry.  To this end, one of its main research areas focuses on optimizing 2D part layout on a large rectangular sheet in the shortest time possible. This minimizes waste material.

    This collaboration will result in the development of an advanced algorithm that achieves the optimization of 2D nesting from various approaches. The researchers from the Computational Mathematics group at BCAM have extensive experience in geometric modeling and optimizing. They're pouring their knowledge into the Lantek collaboration with the following objectives:
     

    •  Design an efficient algorithm for the problem of parts nesting in 2D

    •  Design discreet pairing measures

    •  Improve the current method, which uses the representation of areas (pixels), through boundary representation

    •  Develop software which increases the speed of calculations and optimizes material management

    The current method focuses on improving the geometrical representation of objects and optimizing the search for local solutions between the vertexes of different parts. According to Michael Barton, lead project researcher at BCAM, from the mathematical and computational point of view, a challenge the collaboration faces is obtaining a very precise solution while keeping the rasterization size to a minimum. This will streamline the algorithm and avoid excessive computing times.

    “Lantek has always been at the forefront, with software solutions such as Lantek Expert. Expert provides a solution for the nesting and cutting of parts for companies in the sheet metal and fabrication sector. Thanks to this collaboration with BCAM, we're adding a powerful R&D resource to our organization for research into mathematical problems in general and, specifically, for the improvement of nesting. During the collaborative research with BCAM we will focus on designing an effective algorithm that optimizes the use of space and minimizes both the waste of sheet material and the time spent on calculations,” explained Alberto López de Biñaspre, CEO of Lantek.

    The scientific director at BCAM, Jose A. Lozano, states that the transfer of knowledge to industry has been one of the Center’s priorities from the outset. They have created the Knowledge Transfer Unit (KTU), “a platform for developing mathematical solutions for scientific challenges based on real-life applications and collaboration with the industry.” He explains that these collaborations present themselves in the form of “strategic agreements, R&D projects, joint ventures, training courses, mentoring of Master and PHD students, and the organization of outreach activities.”

    The agreement also envisages the international placement for a PHD student to collaborate with research staff at Lantek. The student will research the possibilities and evaluate the best algorithm, in terms of applicability and results obtained from concept tests. The estimated duration of the project is 4 years, followed by the publication of a doctoral thesis.

    “Backing innovation is in our DNA. It plays a pivotal role in our annual R&D investment, which is well above average for our sector. We are confident that this collaboration with BCAM will bring about significant nesting improvements for our clients that will allow them to reduce scrap metal in a reasonable timeframe,” added the CEO of Lantek.

  • The perfect pour is achieved using an engineered draft beer system that controls everything from temperature to the amount of pressure used to push the beer to the tap. Manufacturing cooling systems that transport beer hundreds of feet are commonplace for Perlick Corp. in Milwaukee, a city with a long history of brewing.

    Perlick provides customized beverage dispensing equipment, including air-cooled dispensing towers, faucets, hardware and glass washing. Each customized setup differs from customer to customer, depending on bar setup and types of beverages. “Our work requires us to be flexible depending on customer requests,” says Debbie Zenisek, manufacturing engineering manager at Perlick. “We needed a software that could integrate into our ERP system to connect our shop floor through sales.”

    Screen_Shot_2019-05-07_at_11.07.57_AM.png

    Information attached to each part, nest, job or order can be transferred between Lantek’s CAD/CAM or MES and the customer’s existing ERP.

    Perlick has worked with Lantek software for nearly two decades. “We’ve stayed with them. We still use lasers we had back in the early 2000s and have added more lasers since then, including different brands and other machine changes—[and throughout] we’ve stayed with Lantek,” Zenisek says. “We recently updated our ERP and were able to again work with Lantek to integrate the ERP jobs into the nesting.”

    Made for metals

    Lantek’s software creates a “digital thread from the part through the manufacturing processes as well as invoicing and analysis,” says Kevin Must, U.S. marketing manager for Lantek. In order for Lantek to integrate with a customer’s existing ERP, engineers begin by determining the connection points between the two systems.

    “Next, we outline the overall look and feel of that system for each specific user. From there, we define the import/export paths, file structure to export from the customer’s ERP to Lantek, and file structure to export from Lantek to the existing ERP.” This information includes inventory information, such as weight of metal sheet and quantity used, as well as production orders and other processing information.

    Screen_Shot_2019-05-07_at_11.07.52_AM.png

    Each of Perlick's configurations differ from customer to customer, depending on bar setup and types of beverages.

    Software engineers’ intuition, coupled with expertise, is a result of actual experience working in the manufacturing sector or by operating machines on a shop floor. “Having a background in the metals/manufacturing sector allows our support team to have a better understanding of the challenges the programmer or operator experiences. They are able to rely on their own real-life anecdotes in the event they need to create a quick work-around for a problem before our developers can address any larger issues,” Must says.

    There is a push/pull data transfer system between the customer’s existing ERP and Lantek software. Information attached to each part, nest, job or order can be transferred between Lantek’s CAD/CAM or MES and the customer’s existing ERP. “This connection eliminates the need to manually export and import data,” Must says. “Lantek also uses system specification milestones and then conducts the rollout and training before going live.”

    Reducing the time needed to communicate between steps was paramount. “Instead of searching for orders, the entire system is up to speed as soon as information is entered. We’re high mix, low volume. Lantek has worked with us to develop the custom systems we need to help us connect our lasers, punches and other fabrication processes on the shop floor for anyone to look up.

    Screen-Shot-2019-05-07-at-11.08.17-AM.jpg

    Users can access machine status updates using Lantek’s Control Panel from mobile devices while away from the shop floor.

    “We’re doing dynamic nesting all day long,” Zenisek continues. “We’re constantly working on how to improve how we nest parts and prioritize jobs. Smaller jobs and smaller nests are now quicker to complete. The sooner that step of the process is complete, the sooner we’re able to get the paperwork through to complete the job for the customer.”

    Software updates are released annually for Lantek’s CAD/CAM software. “We also update our MES and ERP customers on a case-by-case basis,” says Must. Lantek’s updates each of its MES and ERP customers individually because each has different needs and requires varying levels of complex solutions.

    Screen_Shot_2019-05-07_at_11.08.30_AM.png

    Lantek Analytics is easy for users to customize and read. Graphical insights display business production and sales data.

    When customers add new machines to their production floors, Lantek adapts its modular solutions. “This allows greater scalability for Lantek implementations to meet the demands of any sheet metal fabricator depending on each set of needs,” Must says. “This modularity affords manufacturers the ability to start with the software solution that benefits them the most, while continually adding modules as their business grows.”

    Lead times are shorter using an ERP integrated with Lantek software, Zenisek says. “We can agree to customize products for customers and can be more receptive to customer requests. We can provide the custom designs with shorter lead times, and those lead times keep shrinking.”
